Renew Newcastle on the blogs at Reuters, The Atlantic and the BBC

September 2nd, 2009 by marcus


The discussion just keeps coming…

TheĀ  HVRF talk i gave last week has garnered a lot of attention for its analysis and response to the problem of dysfunctional commercial property markets. In the contexts in which i find myself talking about Renew Newcastle the economic issues are rarely discussed or analysed. Given the interest i really need to take the time to flesh that out a lot more explicitly. Unfortunately i’m mentally between about 10 different deadlines and physically between Melbourne, Sydney and Perth so it may have to wait.

Anyhow, in case you missed it. The discussion started with Justin Fox at TIME magazine. It was picked up by Felix Salmon at Reuters, before being continued by Megan McCardle at The Atlantic — all of whom explicitly referenced the Renew Newcastle model, although i’m not sure they got all the details down pat.

And if you are struggling to follow all that, the BBC’s web monitor has had a go at summarising it.

Go figure.
